Spring Break 2015-- Monday

Well today officially starts Spring Break for the kids and I for this year. We are off school/ work through next Monday. We don't have any plans to go anywhere (why is it that this year it seems like EVERYONE we know is going away for break?). Oh well, that doesn't mean that we are going to have a boring break though. I am going to try to do something fun with the kids each day.

Today, we decided to take the kids to Chuck E. Cheese for lunch and some afternoon gaming fun. I will preface this by saying I do not like Chuck E. Cheese. The mouse is creepy, the games noisy and the food overpriced and not that great. But the kids love it (well Rebecca does) and she wanted to go. To make it a little more enjoyable for Rebecca, we invited her best friend and her friend's sister to come with us. After picking them up at their house, we headed out to Chuck E. Cheese.

Rebecca had a blast running around and playing with her friends. Benjamin just liked running around the restaurant. Jacob was fine before we ate, then after we ate he had a meltdown. I think he was overstimulated with the noise and the flashing lights from the games, etc. He cried for the last 45 minutes we were there.

The kids had fun playing all the games. We ordered 2 large pizzas and there was only 4 slices left after the kids ate.  Bill and I had the salad bar (which was expensive!). Overall we spent $60 on food....

Rebecca and her friend Amelia danced with Chuck E. Jacob refused to go near the mouse and Audrey (Amelia's sister) ran the other way whenever the mouse came out. She was terrified of it. 

Overall, the kids had fun (for the most part) and so it was worth it to see Rebecca's smile at the end of the day. It hopefully is the start of a good Spring Break at home. 


  1. I hope you have as much fun for the rest of the time you are on vacation.
